Ugandans DEMAND: END POLICE BRUTALITY

We, concerned citizens of Uganda,
Outraged by the recent brutal actions of the Uganda Police towards opposition politicians and supporters,

Cognizant of Uganda’s history that is tainted with gender specific crimes against women by security forces,

Mindful that Uganda’s General elections are four months away,

Appalled that our Police has exhibited that it is ill-prepared to ensure law and order in an impartial, non-discriminatory and civil way:

Do address you as follows:

It is with great horror and disgust that, on October 10th 2015, Ugandans watched police officers arrest members of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party on their way to Rukungiri for their party mobilization activities. Members of Parliament duly elected by Ugandan citizens were roughed up and some slapped and shoved..

This is not the first time that the Uganda Police has targeted women in politics, to humiliate, embarrass, intimidate and violate their bodies.
